Community support is centre stage at Harlequin

The Harlequin Theatre in Redhill has been repurposed as a community support centre to co-ordinate the distribution of food, emergency welfare packs and medicines to high risk and vulnerable residents needing to self isolate, and to those in severe financial need. The operation is run by over 100 community volunteers alongside Reigate and Banstead Borough Council staff redeployed from other roles. The theatre has been transformed with shelving stacked with food and essentials donated by local supermarkets and market traders; over 440 parcels were dispatched on 15th April alone. The Harlequin support centre is working with other local food banks including St Matthew’s, Redhill and also providing hot meals cooked by the theatres catering staff for those who would otherwise go without.
